    "This Mexican restaurant has a patio lined in pueblo-styled brick walls with Mexican pottery and plants. The centerpiece of the patio is the massive waterfall which babbles away as restaurant goers enjoy their Mexican fare."

    Mac Writt, Urban Milwaukee

    "Our winner for best Fish Taco...what a great place to come with a group of friends to throw back a few margaritas, get some sizzling fajitas and have a great time.   This large restaurant was percolating with loud laughter, pitchers of margaritas, friendly wait staff and families celebrating birthdays."

    "The Mexican eats -- like the tamale chimichanga enchilada and flautas -- pair ideally with the ravenous hunger your tequila consumption will undoubtedly work up"

    "El Fuego is as pleasant as it is attractive, with affordable prices and authentic character. Sit underneath a palm tree near the waterfall."

    Stepping into the popular El Fuego is a wonderful sensory bombardment...It keeps the energy of the customers and servers up and contributes to a party-like atmosphere.  El Fuego is a fun restaurant to have a celebration, especially if you’re looking to celebrate outside on a patio secluded from busy Layton Avenue.

    Lacey Muszynski, Shepherd Express

  • quote

    If a continuously packed parking lot doesn't give you a preemptive clue, El Fuego, 909 W. Layton Ave., is the most popular dining spot to rear its head on the street in decades, maybe ever...The restaurant, whose name translates to "the fire," has lit a fire in the bellies of many South Side diners, creating an already loyal and large following from seemingly north, south, east and west.
